You guys at REI are my besties!! I’m actually finding out that I’m doing better with my gear than I had thought. I had an appointment with REI to go over my base weight items, and low and behold my whole setup was right at 20lbs. Much better than I had thought. I have an REI about 35 miles from home, so it’s a nice weekend stop. Got some great stuff from the garage sale, and bought several things from the outlet. Thanks for the other suggestions, I will definitely try those as well.
